U.S. star Landon Donovan made quite an impression in England during his three-month loan to Everton from the L.A. Galaxy. With Donovan manning the right wing for the Toffees, they reeled off big results against the Premier League's big boys as the talented American scored two goals and provided numerous assists to help Everton climb back up the table before returning to the States.

David Beckham's quest to appear in four straight World Cups was cut short when he ruptured his Achilles' tendon while playing on loan with AC Milan in March. While there was no guarantee that the England star would have made Fabio Capello's Three Lions squad in South Africa, the decision was made for him on the pitch in Italy. Beckham later returned to the L.A. Galaxy to help them reach the Western Conference final in MLS.

Bayern Munich came tantalizingly close to winning the treble in 2010, but had to settle for the Bundesliga title and the DFB Pokal (German Cup) after losing in the Champions League final to Inter Milan. Despite the loss in Europe, it was a fantasic year for the German giants.

What do you do after becoming only the third coach in history to win the Champions League with two different clubs? If you're 'the Special One,' Jose Mourinho, you take on the biggest club in the world and sign on to coach Real Madrid, which is exactly what the Portuguese master did after his European Cup triumph with Inter Milan.

On June 11, South Africa's Soccer City stadium welcomed the world to the first-ever World Cup in Africa. The vuvuzelas were out in force after the opening ceremonies and reached a crescendo when South Africa equalized late in the opener against Mexico thanks to a wonder strike from Siphiwe Tshabalala.

Love them or hate them, the vuvuzela horns in South Africa will long be in the memories of World Cup fans around the globe. Each and every match was accompanied by the constant drone of the horns and traveling fans bought them up by the tens of thousands. The vuvuzela became so controversial that stadiums around the rest of the world began banning them for upcoming league matches.

Already on shaky ground after a dubious qualification for the World Cup, the French squad in South Africa completely imploded during the tournament with poor results, a mutiny against head coach Raymond Domenech, and a team walkout midway through the team's first round group of games. Les Bleus first-round exit was a humbling experience as they returned home in shame without even having come close to reaching the knockout stage.

World Cup referees received loads of criticism during the World Cup -- most of it of course completely warranted. Referee Koman Coulibaly disallowed a late U.S. goal by Maurice Edu that would have beaten Slovenia, while Mauricio Espinosa failed to see that Frank Lampard's goal crossed the line by two feet against Germany in the Round of 16 and disallowed it (pictured). In yet another high profile blunder, Carlos Tevez was yards offside against Mexico but his goal was allowed as the Albicelestes moved on.

Liverpool fans were quite simply fed up with former U.S. owners Geoge Gillett and Tom Hicks after piling up debt at Anfield during their reign, so it came as welcome relief when Boston Red Sox owner John Henry bought the Anfield outfit for $500 million. The former owners fought to block the sale, but to no avail.

To say that 2010 was one of Wayne Rooney's most difficult as a professional would be a gross understatement. He played poorly at the World Cup as England went out in the Round of 16 to Germany, then was caught up in a prostitution scandal that threatened his marriage, and ultimately asked to be traded from Manchester United, a decision that saw mobs of angry fans outside his home protesting his actions. Eventually, the Red Devils and Rooney sorted out their issues, but it remains to be seen what effect this difficult year will have on the young England striker.
